Top 10 Best T20I Batsmen In Run Chases

To find out the best T20I batsmen in successful run chases, we considered all the batsmen who had a chance of coming in the top 10 based on our criteria. We then judged the batsmen who qualified on the basis of five criteria to arrive at the final top 10 batsmen in successful run chases. It is to be noted that we have mentioned only the final 10 batsmen in all the criteria to make things uncomplicated.

The Trend Setter (TS) is the batsmen who does the best in a criteria with certain prerequisites. It is not necessary that he is ranked among the top 10. However, his rating is taking as the benchmark. If a batsman does better than the TS, he gets the max points in the criteria but others are not judged based on his rating.

All ratings are based on some basis. Our rating favours batsmen who have scored more runs at a high average and a good strike rate. Thus runs scored, average and strike rate are the most important criteria. So, without further ado, lets find out who are the best T20I Chase Masters.

*Note: All T20I ratings are updated till 2022-08-14

PROLIFIC

This criteria gives points for number of runs scored.

Note: To be a TS in Prolific, the batsman should have scored the maximum runs in Successful Chases.

CONSISTENT

In this criteria, points are given for your average in Successful Chases. To negate the advantages of batting in the top 3 and against weaker oppostions, we found out the averages of all batsmen at all positions and against different opposition. All this data was combined to get the Comparative Average or the C AVE. This average is the average of players who played at similar positions and against similar oppositions. We then found the Relative Average or R AVE. This average is: A batsman’s average divided by C AVE and then multiplied by 26. 26 is just a number. It doesn’t effect the ratings as everyone’s average is multiplied by it. R AVE is a more accurate average as it negates conditions, oppositions and positions.

Note: To be a TS in Consistent, the batsman should have the best R Average while scoring a minimum of 300 runs.

DOMINANT

This criteria gives points for Strike Rates (SR). Like in Average, we have found the Comparative SRs of batsmen and then their Relative SRs.

Note: To be a TS in Dominant, the batsman should have the best R SR while scoring a minimum of 300 runs at an average of more than 28.00.

BIG INNINGS POTENTIAL

In this criteria, we found out the top 5 scores of a batsman in Successful Chases. Ave High Score (Ave HS) is simply the top 5 scores divided by 5.

Note: To be a TS in BIP, the batsman should have the best Ave HS.

Note: To be a TS in QIP, the batsman should have the highest Relative Strike Rate in his top 5 quickest innings.

FINISHING THE CHASE

In this criteria, we found out the number of times a batsman had the chance of finishing the chase, that is the number of 2nd innings. We then found out the number of times he was Not Out in successful chases. Points are then given for the percentage of times he was successful in being at the crease in a successful chase. The maximum points in this criteria is 200.00.

Note: To be a TS in this criteria, the batsman should have the best Not Out percentage while playing a minimum of 25 second innings.
